The Ratchada Criminal Court on Wednesday sentenced two students guilty of the brutal beating of a security guard at Ramkhamhaeng University to one year and 15 days in prison each, suspended for three years.
Panjapol Tuenpakdi, 23, a third year student enrolled in the business administration faculty, and Pason Rodkerd, 24, a master's degree student from the same faculty, were arrested for conspiring with five others to use wooden bats to savagely beat Thawichart Soimas, 52, a car park guard at the university on March 17.
The assault stemmed from an argument between the students and the guard over parking in a prohibited area. Mr Thawichart sustained head and facial injuries, a broken right leg and severe bruising to his body.
